How Long Does Home Organising Take?
We book by the session with a minimum of three hours. While each client’s situation is unique:
- Three hours can be enough to complete a small space.
- Larger projects are better suited to multiple sessions of four to six hours each.
- Longer sessions of up to eight hours per day are recommended in time-sensitive situations such as moves.
The final 10 minutes of each session are dedicated to packing up, reviewing our progress and if required setting a follow-up.
Do I Need to be Present?We can work side by side with you the whole time or on our own with intermittent input from you, however in most cases the editing stage needs to be completed together as we go through items and decide what needs to be kept/donated/discarded. We provide plenty of assistance and encouragement throughout this process, but ultimately it is completely your decision on what you wish done with your belongings.
How much does a professional organiser cost?This is a questions we often get asked, and it can be hard to give a definitive answer. The cost depends on a number of factors, including;
- The size of your spaces and the number of possessions you have
- How quickly you can make decisions about what you want to keep/donate/discard
- Whether you require additional storage solutions
How Many Organisers will Attend?It all depends on the size and time-frame of the project. Small projects may only require the one organiser, however for most projects there will be two organisers present. If it is a large job like a relocation or in situations where there are significant amounts of clutter, it may be more productive and cost-effective to bring along additional team members. This will be discussed prior to the start of a project.
I'm Embarrassed About the Amount of Clutter I Have!At Well Organised we have seen it all. Please don't be embarrassed as we do not judge you, we assess the situation so we can work out how best we can assist. We understand everyone has busy lives, and having the time to declutter and organise your home can be very time consuming and often not high on the priority list of jobs you have to complete on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes, there are years of stored items, and it becomes overwhelming to tackle the job yourself. This is where we excel, we can see through the clutter, and help you create a more organised life by implementing systems that are suited to your own needs, habits, and preferences. We respect your privacy and maintain confidentiality at all times.
Do You Work Weekends & Public Holidays?We understand not everyone has availability during weekday hours and we will attempt to co-ordinate a time that suits you, however Weekends, Public Holidays and after hours sessions attract a 20% loading.
I have funding available through the NDIS, do you provide organising support that aligns with my funding?
Well Organised endeavour to provide a service that exceeds our clients’ expectations, part of that service often includes additional tasks that are in excess to what is covered under funded packages, i.e. NDIS, Home Care Package Services, etc.
To address this, we have created a separate business that reflects more accurately the requirements of ‘funded’ clients. Please visit our Perth Decluttering Services website for more details.

Alternatively, why not try our Virtual Organising Sessions . We can discuss what will work best during our initial phone consultation.
We love helping clients set up holiday homes ready for personal use or short term rental and providing relocation assistance for those moving further afield.

Where possible we like to use what you have however, there may be a need to purchase additional storage solutions, which we can arrange.
